XR Geomembranes on Nov 10, 2015 4:02:53 PM

Over 1.5 million square feet of high tensile XR-5 is used as a landfill liner. 

Project Details:Browning Ferris Landfill Liner

Name: Browning Ferris Landfill
Dates: Installed in multiple phases between 1983 - 1989
Location: New Hudson, MI U.S.A.

Project Story:

This sanitary landfill, owned by Browning Ferris, employed 1:1, 190 foot slopes. Over 1.5 million square feet of XR-5 was used to line this landfill, where only a high tensile strength geomembrane would perform. Wedge welding up the slope was used to make field welds to join the large prefabricated panels.
